I agree, however we are still stuck with him and his policies for the next four years. I take solace in the fact that if he is as power-hungry as some sources suggest him to be, he won't do anything so radical that may cost him a re-election in the future.

Also, major props to the NDP and Layton!

Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper and Conservatives won a majority of seats in Parliament for the first time, giving him a mandate to fund corporate and personal income tax cuts with curbs on spending.
Let the cutting begin !!

He should be careful. Extreme cuts like what some are forecasting would certainly lead to a NDP government in 4 years.

Maybe I wouldn't miss every cut in government spending, but others would.
Some have talked about cuts to women's shelters, for example. That would not directly impact me, but it would effect many vulnerable people out there, and for those minorities affected, I think a majority should come to their defense.

It really depends on where they cut. I'm not in favour of cutting for cutting sake, but if they do a proper review and determine that money is being spent needlessly in certain areas, I don't see a problem with streamlining the funding better. Services may even be improved.

But services like women's shelters are essential and should not be cut entirely.

Government streamlining is necessary, no question. There are severe inefficiencies in the federal government. What will be interesting to see is how they actually go about this. I doubt that they can find $11B through attrition only, so programs will certainly be cut. It'll be a very delicate task.

So, no steady stream of Canadian refugees escaping tyrannical conservative rule spotted here in Indiana yet.

But maybe they're seeking sanctuary in Vermont.

Holy Shit I just read the horrible news today. I don't think thought a couple of months ago that I would be writing Jack Layton RIP.
